What's to be done with Freddie Sears?
Well we sent the poor sod into the arms of Neil Warnock and that didn't work. He scored a goal but the referee struck it off, not realising it had hit the back of the net; and that was it. In January we called Freddie back and Zola brought him onto the field of play as a substitute - desperate times call for desperate measures it seems.
But then in came the Davids and some proper strikers were signed: well Ilan has scored some goals and Mido and McCarthy have added some balance to the bench, like two fat kids at either end of a see-saw! So Freddie was surplus to requirements again and was given the ultimate cold shoulder treatment, he was sent to Coventry - literally!
Surely this move would work out for our future England striker; surely now the goals would flow? Well sadly, although now playing for Coleman, Freddie's performances have still been some way short of mustard and that long awaited first Championship goal is still, well long awaited. Coventry have been on a losing run that even Zola would envy and still Freddie isn't considered good enough to get a kick of the ball! And now, with the season over, even Coventry are sending Freddie to...well back to West Ham as it happens.
It's beginning to look as if the pup is precisely that...a pup. Shame. I wonder who he won't score for next season?
